THE YARN


I used 2 balls of Womens Institute (Hobbycraft) Soft & Chunky in Masarla, its 70% Acrylic, 30% Merino Wool (this colour is now discontinued, but they do have other colours to choose from – Cream, Red, Grey, Teal, Purple, Navy, Mustard, Black, Fuchsia, Neon Coral, Green, Pink Mix & Blue Mix)

Alternative yarns you could use instead –

1 ball of Bernat Maker Outdoor

2 balls of Lion Brand Hometown USA

PERFECT AUTUMNAL ACCESSORY


The Chelsea Cowl is the perfect autumnal accessory to add to your wardrobe, that is super quick and easy to work up.  Only two stitches are used throughout, the half double crochet and also double crochet, so it really is an easy project suitable for a beginner.

HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO CROCHET THAT?


How long it takes to crochet something varies depending on your skill & how fast you crochet. But that isn’t a helpful answer is it?

Well, Joy of Motion Crochet developed a yarn calculator to help you get the answer to this question.

It will help you calculate exactly how much time you’ll spend crocheting a project.

All you need to know is how much yarn you will use on the project in either meters, yards or skeins. Then crochet your test square & time it.

Calculate how long it takes to crochet that.

NOTES: 


  • This crochet pattern is written in US terms (more details).
  • All measurements given are unblocked.
  • Note that measurements are given as exact as possible. But crochet tension & technique might give variations in the result, that changes from person to person.

 

  • Read pattern instructions carefully before beginning to make sure you understand everything. It might save you hours!
  • Make a swatch that measure at least 10 x 10 cm / 4 x 4 inches using the stitch the gauge is given for. If your swatch matches the gauge, you’re good to go. If the gauge is wrong, you might need to change your hook. Go up in crochet hook size if your stitches are smaller & go down in crochet hook size if your stitches are bigger (more details).
  • Check yarn info if you want to find an alternative or test your yarn against the gauge (more details).

 

  • This pattern is written for 1 size, however size adjustments are suggested under the heading “Size & Measurements”.
  • At the end of each row, the stitch count is given in parenthesis.

SIZE ADJUSTMENTS:

  • The size can easily be adjusted by increasing or decreasing your beginning chain by multiples of 3

 

ABBREVIATIONS:


Ch = chain (s) (tutorial)

Sl st = slip stitch (tutorial)

St = stitch (es)

Rnd = round

Hdc = half double crochet (tutorial)

Dc = double crochet

Cluster = three double crochet worked into the same space (or ch3 & 2dc)

 

STITCHES YOU WILL NEED: 


Some of the half double crochets are worked into the 3rd loop of the stitch, which can be found on the back of your work, just under your top two normal working stitches.

TECHNIQUES YOU WILL NEED: 


TECHNIQUE:

I like to place my first stitches into the back bump of the chain, this can be found by twisting the chain towards you.  It is not essential to the pattern, I just prefer the finished look, give it a go and see what you think
